Verizon having the LTE plans on a month-to-month, with the modems costing $249.99
There is one pretty unpleasant catch, though. Those USB dongles Verizon uses to supply the LTE goodness to your device of choice, are ballooning in cost on a month-to-month payment scheme, to the tune of $249.99. Well, if that's what it takes to use Verizon's LTE, and still be able to ditch it if someone comes with a better offer, it might be worth it.

of coarse they're still going to have the capability of buying something full retail and then you not having a contract...
why would that change because your network does...?
P.S. You site lags when you scroll... badly

I too am shocked that this is considered news... why wouldn't there be a month to month option just like everything else offered by vzw. I know 4g is new, but basic business practices aren't changing.

It's useful information for me. I will never sign a 2 year contract again for anything.
Which is the only reason I'm staying with Verizon right now; they're the only major provider with 1-year contracts for cellular phone service.

newflash...every major carrier has 1 yr. contract options. what's the big deal about 2 year agreements? Which would you prefer option a) 2 yr. agreement with a subsized price on a phone or option b) full retail pricing on a phone (which for a smartphone you're looking at anywhere between $499 - $580) with no contract? Call me crazy but i'd rather do a 2 yr. contract.

So why wouldn't you just pay the $175 early termination fee instead of paying $249.99 full retail??? Wouldn't you save $75 by canceling early if you didn't want to keep the contract?

prices not bad but the limits are too low, should be more like $50 for 10gb $80 for 20
